Gospel Music Association award winner Amy Grant has just released, “Tennessee Christmas,” a compilation of yuletide tunes perfect for holiday listening. The festive album marks Grant’s first all-new seasonal offering in almost 20 years!
And yes, the incomparable voice of Grant’s husband Vince Gill is prominently featured on her latest gift to country music fans. Who doesn’t love a two-fer, especially when it comes to our favorite country music stars?
This year has been a boon for country fans, with superstar couple Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood also releasing a Christmas album perfect for gift-giving! If you already have Garth and Trisha’s album, “Christmas Together,” why not double the fun and add Amy and Gill to the mix?
Grant’s offering is a solid mix of both traditional Christmas classics and contemporary tunes. Fans will take delight in Grant’s sweet interpretation of, “Joy to the World, and savor her rendition of the timeless classic, “White Christmas.”
But listeners will also get a dose of realism in songs like, “Melancholy Christmas,” and, “Another Merry Christmas.” Grant chose to include these unique songs on her album in order to portray the lonely sadness that many people feel during the holiday season.
According to Grant, “her hope is that those who are struggling will find a sense of peace by realizing that they are not alone,” after listening to the songs.
Six time Grammy winner Grant was the first Christian music artist to record a platinum album. During her long and illustrious career Grant has scored three multi-platinum records, six platinum records, and four gold records. She’s attained 10 Top 40 pop singles.
Grant is currently touring with Michael W. Smith, and “The Voice,” winner Jordan Smith. In December she joins hubby Vince Gill for, “Christmas at the Ryman.”
